provides the WorldWide leading concept and technology of high-resolution respirometry applied for the functional diagnosis of mitochondrial defects. New developments are targeted at MultiSensor systems for simultaneous monitoring of metabolic parameters in small samples of biopsies, cultured cells and isolated mitochondria. The company is fully scientifically oriented, with emphasis on continous innovation, improvement, scientific support and validation.
OROBOROS INSTRUMENTS is established as setting the gold standard in high-resolution respirometry. The close link to Innsbruck Medical University generates a direct relation between research and instrumental developement. International links are emphasized by the WorldWide MiPNet on high-resolution respirometry - the Mitochondrial Physiology Network.
OROBOROS INSTRUMENTS evolved from and integrated approach: direct - from prototype development, production and documentation, to world-wide distribution, including custom-made upgrading of the Oxygraph-2k. Continuous innovation ensures the position of our instruments at the leading edge of high-technology.
For many groups, the OROBOROS Oxygraph-2k will become too expensive if local distributors are involved. 40% profit margins for the distributor (from the customer price) are usual in this business. Direct world-wide distribution - from development to your application - provides an alternative, returning distributor costs with direct feedback into science.
